Reducing Risks With Pre-employment Background Screenings

The hiring process involves a number of intricate steps, and there’s good reason why. Of all your assets, valuable employees are among the most important, and you want to make sure you pick the right ones. No matter what industry you operate in, it’s important to ensure you don’t compromise the safety and well-being of your employees, and ARCpoint Labs in Minneapolis Metro area can help you achieve in that. There are many situations in which a background check can help you protect your company such as:

  • Direct care of children and the elderly
  • Access to company assets and financial information
  • Direct access of secure information
  • Provision of passwords and access codes to access company and client data
  • Regular operation of expensive tools and equipment

It’s important to keep in mind that a bad choice in the past doesn’t mean the candidate didn’t learn from their mistakes. However, with a background screening, you have a heads-up in regards to the type of behavior in which a candidate has been known to engage. This gives you a chance to discuss this potential issue before making a hiring decision.

Information We Can Provide to Make Hiring Easier

When you devise a background check, you want to ensure you don’t cross discriminatory lines, so it’s important that you carefully analyze the types of questions asked and determine how they fit in with the job description. Just some of the information ARCpoint Labs can offer include:

  • Criminal Record
  • Credit Report (including bankruptcies)
  • Driving Record
  • Past Employment References
  • Education, Certifications & Licenses
  • Child Abuse and Neglect Records
  • Military Records
  • Physical Capacity Assessments

To reiterate, it’s important that your background check is relevant to the nature of the job. Furthermore, a negative result should not be used as a final decision to disregard a candidate for further exploration. This could cause you to miss out on ideal candidates. Rather, use the information revealed to delve in further to see how the potential employee handles the situation when brought up.
